In Sync with Families

"A school striving for family involvement often leads with its mouth—identifying projects, needs, and goals and then telling parents how they can contribute. A school striving for parent engagement, on the other hand, tends to lead with its ears—listening to what parents think, dream, and worry about. The goal of family engagement is not to serve clients but to gain partners." (Larry Ferlazzo, "Involvement or Engagement?")

See how the educators in this issue made the important pivot to partner with parents—and how this pivot has been fundamental to student success.
